Editor’s Column: Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts

Although the phrase is commonly attributed to the Joe Friday character on Dragnet (a popular TV show in the 1950s), it was actually coined as part of a Dragnet parody. Nevertheless, it makes for a good rule of thumb in journalism. On any given day, emails and phone calls (and sometimes live, warm bodies) come […]

Letter to the Editor: 40th reunion of Chautauqua and The TANK is Saturday

Dear Editor: We are celebrating 40 years of activities at The TANK with food and music.

Rangely girl, age 8, will compete at the National Braille Challenge in L.A.

RANGELY I Sometimes, when a place is familiar enough, she navigates it by feel. Like the Rangely Recreation Center, where she took swimming lessons from Miss Camilla and Miss Natalie. Or True Value, where Uncle Rodger and Aunt Debbie work. She’s been attending Storytime at the Rangely Library since she was a toddler, greeting Aunt […]

The St. Mary’s Bloodmobile will be located in the parking lot. Reservations are not needed.

On Sunday afternoon, the Friends of The TANK and dozens of TANK supporters knew that feeling for the second time in three years. Nearly 700 local and national backers and donors in 19 countries worldwide made the Open The TANK Kickstarter […]
